LEADING UMES INTO THE NEW
UMES STUDENT LEADERS AT CAMP
NANTICOKE FOR THE FALL LEADERSHIP
On our remote campus in Princess Anne, these are some of the
various faces you may see daily. Whether walking on the yard, in front
of the "cafe", or watching a game in our new Athletic Facility, there is
always a warm Hawk smile somewhere in the midst. In this yearbook
you will see a compilation of our Hawk family and friends, highlighting
events and activities from our school year. Some moments of triumph,
events filled with laughter, and even those not so eventful moments, are
all contained with in these pages. All these can be seen on the many
faces that make us who we are . . . UMES.
Check out those smiles.
What a Kodak moment.

The time has come for me to bid farewell to eI
fine University that I have called my home foiS
four years. These four years have been defining'
moments of my life, and I will never forgeli
them. I will remember how interacting with nu-ii
merous faculty and staff has helped me to freeif
myself from my shell, and emerge triumphantlyli
as Jeffrey Carpenter jr., Mr. University of Mary|
land Eastern Shore, 1998-1999. I will never loseif
the memories that the University of Marylandij
Eastern Shore has given me. j
Upon becoming Mr. UMES, 1 thought to my-i
self, what can you do to bring this position to aj
new level? After soul searching, I realized thai
my ability to take control of things, and make
things happen, would be what 1 offer. This yeai
has been one that offered me many opportuni-
ties to use these skills. 1 had so many dreams
and aspirations for my reign, that I still want to
accomplish, but unfortunately, I have run out oi
To the Freshmen, take advantage of all that
this University has to offer you, drain it for every
bit of information and resource that it can pro-e
vide. Sophomores, buckle down and start to re-f'
alize what dreams you have for your life, and|l
begin to focus on them. Your time to choosel
what you want is now. Juniors, you are on the:
verge of starting a new chapter in your life. Are '
you ready? Take the time you have left here and i
network, if you have not already. Learn what is i
available to you outside of the UMES campus. i
Finally, to the Seniors, class of 1999, no one;
knows what the future holds for you because'
you hold your future in your hands. Run with it, I
establish yourself, make it happen. For now you 1
are your own support, your rock. Make the mosti
of your life and do what will make you happy/
No regrets. t
Finally, but not in the least bit forgotten, to theji
University of Maryland Eastern Shore, keep the'
door to a new beginning open wide, and keep i
evolving into a new and remarkable species. The \
black college is essential in the development and '
stability of our race, and it is the instructors, pro-j
fessors, deans, etc., are integral beams in thei
House that Pride built.
Touched forever by your existence,
Jeffrey Carpenter Jr.
Mr. UMES 1998-1999
Bidding farewell is so difficult to do especially
vhen you love your job. As Miss University of
/laryland Eastern Shore 1998-1999, I had two
;oals. My first goal was to promote scholastic
achievement and talent. My second goal was to
iromote cultural diversity because of our grow-
ng global community. My goals could not have
^een accomplished if I did not have supportive
dministration, faculty, staff, student body, fam-
,y, and friends. I truly believe that God has
,-uided my path throughout my years at UMES,
ind through Him, all things are possible.
1 My challenge to everyone is to remember
our values and from where you came. These
re your roots to your foundation of life. Strive
our hardest to achieve above and beyond. You
ire living your history, so live a success story. Al-
ways remember that great words of our alum-
,us Jesse Williams, "A dream without a plan is a
3ntasy. A plan without execution is a missed op-
portunity." And also listen to what Malcolm X
ince said, "Education is the key to success, for
omorrow belongs to those who prepare for it to-
ay." So please, while you are in this chapter of
pur life called "college plan", prepare, and exe-
ute so you will secure our future as the doers
nd shakers of tomorrow. We are that which
/ill make our alma mater, UMES, shine above
^e others. To the Class of 1999, thank you for
"le memories, but while graduation marks the
nd of this chapter in our lives; it's really just the
eginning. Remember . . . Think of the future as
; wonderful door opening into a promising new
md. Learn from the past; but do not let it deter-
line your future. Forget about any mistakes. Be
lad that you are living in a world that is so full
f opportunity. Be optimistic. Appreciate the fact
lat you have God-given talents and abilities
lat are uniquely yours, and don't be afraid to
se them. Be the best you can be. Seek the ad-
ice and help of others, but always remember
lat yours is the final word. Make your own de-
sions, explore your own self, and find your
wn dreams. Be persistent; try not to get dis-
puraged when things don't go your way. Do all
iiat you can to make this world a better place to
ve. Be aware that life isn't always easy, but with
iven time and hard work, it can be everything
ou want it to be. Most of aO be happy! The fu-
ire awaits you, and it's a wonderful time to be
Again, I thank you all for affording me the op-
prtunities to represent this iUustrious Univer-
ity, and I hope that I served you well.

Dear HAWK Family:
To my fellow HAWKS, the time has come for us to leave UMES the place that has been our nest for the
last four years. A lot has happened in all of our lives since we made our first step on this beautiful campus
as freshmen in '95.' I know that whatever field we enter, UMES has prepared us to take the world by
storm. We look within ourselves to find the things that we have learned during our stay here, and focus
them towards accomplishing our hearts desire.
I take this time to say thank you to my HAWK Family and the people who made my year as President a
success! First, I would like to thank God for giving me the opportunity to represent the student body and
use my leadership skills to develop a better university for the students. Second, I would like to thank the
Administration, faculty and staff for being my voice of reason in my decisions. I appreciate the opportu-
nity to make final decision concerning the student body and knowing that I would have your full support
and understanding. Third, I want to thank my SGA staff for the 1998-1999 academic year for all of their
hard work and dedication. Without my caring staff, none of these things would have been possible.
Finally, I would like to give full thanks to University of Maryland Eastern Shore student body for elect-
ing and trusting me with the most important position, of being your voice for the university and aboard.
Also, for giving me the opportunity to take your suggestions and make them reality. I feel this year has
taught me a lot about being a leader and a decision-maker. Now that I have pass this learning experience
to another dedicated leader, I hope and pray that "HAWK PRIDE" will never leave the hearts and souls
of everyone that has or will be attending the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. And peace to the best
and the last class of the century Class of 1999 "The best was saved for last."
